Just 2 weeks to go before the 60-day deadline expires and
already the press has started speculating on what might happen.
Jack Straw last night risked triggering panic buying by urging
people to stockpile fuel and food. Mr Straw insisted drivers
should keep their tanks full and warned the NHS, Government and
businesses to get in essential supplies.
I have always believed that secretly the Government would like
to see further disruption and possible hardship if fuel
distribution is once again effectively cut off. They need to
maintain a hard line against protests but due to the
overwhelming support from the motoring public realise it needs
to turn the tide of public opinion against the fuel protesters.
Gordon Brown could come up with just enough to pacify the
Hauliers and Farmers but it will most certainly be at the cost
of the general motorists. My car runs on 98 octane super
unleaded and a few days ago while returning to London from
Brighton needed to fill up, I pulled into a Q8 service station
just off the M23 and paid 99.9p per litre, that's about £4.50 a
gallon! I really believe the £5 gallon will be with us sooner
than you think!
I will keep you posted on developments as we approach the
deadline, you might like to look at the following from the FTA
& Other Unions who are demanding:
An Immediate minimum 15ppl cut in fuel duty, a reduction in Road
Tax for light vehicles and cars based on environmental criteria
and a system for making foreign HGV's contribute towards
Britain's roads. Proposed actions by drivers, farmers and
Haulage Company's are as follows should these demands not be
Blockades of M25 Junctions from 5am until 7pm for 5 Days
Blockades / Slow moving traffic on all motorways and major trunk
roads (A1 A11 etc) for 5 Days
Blockades of Petrol distribution centres from 12am, 13 November
for 5 Days with only emergency vehicle fuel being distributed.
Blockades of all major ports and airports for 5 Days
Boycott Petrol @ BP Stay Away From Every BP Petrol Station
